Wales Wales

Wales – is a country located in the southwestern part of Britain and is part of the United Kingdom. Despite its small size, there are five nature reserves and three national parks, as well as perfectly preserved medieval sites of interest to tourists.


Ferry infrastructure

Wales is washed by the Celtic and Irish Seas, and there are a large number of islands off the coast of this small country, including the largest of them – Anglesey. The total length of the coastline is more than a thousand kilometers. This geographical location determines the high development of water communication. River and sea ferries run regularly. The crossings are served by two major carriers:

  • Stena line;
  • Irish Ferries. 

You can buy your ferry ticket not only at the ticket office, but also book it online. This allows you to plan your trip in advance and save money.

Main ports and ferry routes

The largest ports in Wales are Newport, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock. Major routes include:

  • Pembroke – Rosslare Europort (flight time is 4 hours);
  • Holyhead – Dublin (travel time – 135 minutes);
  • Fishguard – Rosslare Europort (crossing in just 2 hours and 15 minutes)

Since all the voyages are not too long, it is not necessary to book a cabin. Onboard modern ferries provide comfortable seats as well as other amenities, so the trip will be at a high level.

The land of castles, ancient sites and mining towns offers entertainment for all tastes – from the museums of Cardiff to the spectacular mountains of Snowdonia and the cliffs of Pembrokeshire. Wales – a fantastic place with a unique culture and scenery that takes your breath away. The capital has a vibrant social and cultural life, but so do traditional villages, unchanged since the Middle Ages, and small towns like atmospheric St. Davids.
